    Same here. I detest the fact that the IRNV directly destroys one of the gameplay components that sets BF3 apart from nearly every other shooter that came before it (ie; that visual camouflage actually works, that players can properly hide in shadows, smoke/dust and foliage) but no unlock should be entirely useless either.

    As someone who dislikes the IRNV I still hope that footage isn't representative of the actual changes.
    Unfortunately, my impression of DICE's balancing approach from BFBC2 and BF3 so far is that they tend to go too far one way or the other; which would be fine if the patches came thick and fast, but there's far too much time between them.

    :clap::clap::clap:

    that's how it should be like in daytime or against flashlight. (like his first death)

    slightly too much in tunnels of Metro, but meh. he has seen the other guy anyway, could have gotten the kill if he used normal scope, serves him right for trying to scan an area using NoobVision.


    agree with Naloac. Beta IRNV was okay, short range, and any flame/explosion got highlighted.

    I hate it when this happens, the maps designs is pretty shoddy all in, so if one team gets all the objectives the other nearly always gets stuck in their base and raped to death. Obviously this is worse on high ticket servers as normally the games finished before this can happen.

    I don't like the normal ticket servers because just as i start to get into it its over, the average round time seems to be 10-15 minutes which is rubbish, but then i hate it when this happens too.

    just checked, you are right.

    VSS was 25-20 damage when all other guns such as AR and SMG are 18-10.
    AS-VAL is 22-16 while all other guns are 25-20. AS-VAL relays on fast firing rate to kill, so very short-range weapon :(

    im a sad panda :waah: will just have to continue to use SKS then.

    At least you can still shoot people with that one! The irnv in that first video looks like you might aswell blindfold yourself whenever you scope up.

    Hmm I wonder why it looks so bad in the Metro vid then? Although all I can notice is more blurring at times rather than it being an always-on thermal cam :confused:

    I'm sure I have the worst luck with team mates on 1000 ticket servers. 64 player map, I could 17 sat at spawn waiting for a chopper.

    And the rest? Sniping. Then proceeding to bitch about how we haven't got any control points. There was me and about 5 others trying to run and capture the points.

    I know exactly what you mean. It becomes sort of a 5 man army opposed to a 32 man army.

    Calling all Bit-techers:

    Aria.co.uk forums community (which i frequent for offers and free delivery) have raised a challenge, they want to see which community is better at BF3.

    I need your help on Sunday 11th December to crash them. they are only a small community, so as long as we got a good turn out, there should be no problem thrashing them.

    all are welcome, objective is to have fun.

    I'm in if I'm about, but I am currently at the playing level of a fingerless lobotomised mole at the moment....

    thats much more like it. over range it blurs out, closer u get a more contrast colour.



    now to wait for Karkand......


    ps: that youtube is the official confirmation from DICE. that will be the final look for the patched INVR.
